I've studied and worked on many wireless communication systems. Almost did my master's thesis in it. So when I saw this quote by quotediary.me, I had to share.
I turn 30 today. People are telling me it's a "milestone" birthday. Not quite sure what that means. I still feel the same as if I were still in my 20's. Maybe the 30's are the new 20's? I also realize that 30 is halfway to 60. That is 50% of the way to 60 years old. (I assume 60 years old to be old. Sorry, for any 60 year old readers.). I just read a billboard yesterday saying that in 2020, the number of 100 year olds in the world will double. Maybe then, 60 will be the new 30? :p
Putting aside the analysis of what it means to be 30, it made me reflect about what I have accomplished so far in my life. I can say to myself that allhumdullilah I have done quite a bit of living. I have my faith, my family, my health, my career, and I have been to many places. I am very fortunate. I think the power of prayer (dua) has helped me get this far.
I read the news, and see that there are so many people who are struggling and going through so many terrible things. I feel that we as a community need to combine our prayers to create a huge through-put rate, so that our average dua/sec will exceed any LTE or 4th generation wireless broadband standard... and actually help to make this world a better place.
Here's to praying for a better world. And praying for the families of the victims of the horrible building collapse in Savar, Bangladesh.
